The latency to Europe is about 250 ms. The latency to North America
would be around 330 ms. The latency to Asia is about 135 ms. You
could get 100 ms for locations such as India or Singapore. I am not
sure about the latency to China, Russia or South America.

There are different routes which can be used for your connection to
the (remote) server. A longer route will increase the latency. Some
routes might be cheaper; hence this being a business decision instead
of one about choosing the route with the lowest latency.

A regulator usually monitors the "quality of service" and should be
able to provide an average latency to different locations. I suggest
contacting the Information and Communication Technologies Authority,
if you have not done that, and ask for some statistics about latency.
